Abstract Submissions Policies

  1. For an abstract to be considered for late-breaking presentation, the submitting author must:
    • Explain why this abstract could not have been submitted for the regular abstract deadline.
    • Explain why the findings are of high scientific impact, especially newsworthy and deserving of consideration. Please note: Stating that “results are only now available” is not enough explanation.
    • Identify the trial phase if the abstracts reports resulting of an ongoing clinical trial.
    • Submissions that leave any of these details unanswered will not be considered for review.
  2. Late-breaking abstracts must not be a revision of an abstract submitted to the original submission deadline. This submission is NOT intended for updates to data submitted for the original submission deadline.
  3. Late-breaking abstracts cannot contain data previously presented at a national meeting within the US at the time of abstract submission OR already accepted for publication in any online or PubMed indexed venue at the time of abstract submission.
  4. Submission of a late-breaking abstract constitutes a commitment by the presenting author to register and attend the Annual Meeting to present their work.
  5. No-show presenters will be reported to the Annual Meeting Planning Committee, which may affect future abstract submission opportunities.
  6. Maximum length: 2,500 characters not including images/figures. Charts, graphs, and tables may be included as an image, for all categories. Submission site allows uploading of files into the system. Changes can be made to the abstract PRIOR to the late-breaking submission deadline.
